A Colorful Evening
Last night (November 8) nearly 170 juniors met in the AAC to BYOB (Build Your Own Burger). This evening of recollection focused on the relationship the juniors have with God based on their lives so far. The juniors investigated areas where they struggle with God, particularly when things don’t go exactly as they want. Mr. Dubon ’99, Mr. Dolce ’99, and varsity football head coach Mr. Dolan ’85 discussed events in their own lives that have not gone as they wanted, but by having trust in God and putting things in His control, they have been led to where they are today.
